Several contributions in our first publication approximately schizo affective problems (Marneros and Tsuang, Schizoaffective Psychoses, Springer-Verlag, 1986) supported the idea that schizoaffective problems vary in proper methods from schizophrenic issues. The class of schizo affective problems as a subgroup of schizophrenia has additionally been criticized, and empirical learn in medical, genetic, healing, and prognostic components helps the concept that there are a few robust similari­ ties among schizo affective and affective problems. after all, there aren't in simple terms similarities among those teams, but in addition modifications simply as there are among schizo affective and schizophrenic issues. it's exactly the lifestyles of similarities and alterations among schizo affective problems and the opposite so-called normal psychological problems, i.e., schizophrenia and affective issues, which makes them a problem in psychiatric learn, a problem to the conventional dichotomy within the type of problems which originated with Kraepelin. This problem is definitely proving fruitful in psychiatric study. those "cases in among" could display that sep­ arating, dividing, and restricting isn't really continuously significant. occasionally it may be extra significant to unify; to unify within the feel of creating bridges among average teams. it's right here that the idea of a "psychotic continuum" can develop into correct, and the research of schizoaffective issues is of major significance in examine on a potential continuum of psychosis.
